Course overview

Learn how to positively influence your organization with small changes.

What if your starting point was 'I know nothing?'

Let that sync in...

We are in an era of uncertainty, rapid evolution, and growth of artificial intelligence.

There is so much going on. Sometimes, going back to basics can be enlightening.

Moreover, building great things with AI and without AI requires us, in a way to 'unlearn to learn'.


Tabula Rasa is the notion of going back to a blank state to form opinions based on experiences. Hence the title of this course, Unlearn to Learn.

Leaders often think that outside constraints are the main barriers to innovation, and that AI will either fix all problems or eat everything alive.

Innovation does not happen in silos. It is not a one-off exercise.

It happens with real action across the organization, with real people, and meaningful collaboration.

That is beyond 'wanting to be creative' or 'assuming we are creative' or 'working together'.

It's a mindset that needs to be nurtured, embracing tools and methodologies for the right reasons, thinking and doing alike.

Because in order to build big things and innovate, we need big minds to come together, with (and without) AI.


Why is it important today? There is a strong link between creativity and financial performance, with successful companies turning creativity into value and growth.

Now is the right time to adapt and explore. Because the future is about innovation. Not just solving problems.

Companies that are creative tend to make more money and grow successfully.

This course will teach you to develop a creative mindset, engage in collaborative creation, and apply critical thinking with the help of both humans and AI. Through conversations and discovery!

2 x 120 min live weekend sessions designed for busy professionals.

1 60 min Bonus Drop-in Open space.

The difference between doing good work and doing great work lies in our human capability of dealing with uncertainty and working better together.

I've worked with Big 4 & Fortune 500 companies, startup founders and students from over 60 countries and multiple industries to help them build better products, services and experiences. I've also interviewed over 85 guests on my podcast.

The purpose of this course is to share my 15 years of learnings with you, especially if you strive to inspire and improve teamwork and growth.

If you're a business leader, lawyer, engineer/techie, founder, or simply working with people, this course is for you.
